Photography from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art is coming to WestBend.
The Amon Carter museum and Trademark Property Co., developer of the WestBend mixed-use district at South University Drive and River Run, have collaborated on a new public art program that features reproductions of the museum's photography collection. The exhibit is currently showcasing nine photographs that will be replaced with new images every six months.
The inspiration behind the program comes from Trademark Property Co.’s Conscious Place initiative, in which the company strives to make its developments a place of community and meaning, Trademark Property Co. CEO Terry Montesi says.
“Incorporating public art into our properties by partnering with local and national artists and museums is a key initiative for Trademark portfolio-wide because it helps elevate the purpose of our properties beyond retail and commerce. Art adds soul to a property, along with educational and inspirational elements,” Montesi said in a statement. “We are thrilled that WestBend can serve as a home for these pieces and hope that the community gets as much enjoyment from them as we do.”
Along with the photograph collection, five photographic murals created by TCU graduate and assistant registrar at the Amon Carter, Devon Nowlin, are also on display.
